Native 4k performance is just ok, at best

Unneccessary 16-pin connector

The Nvidia RTX 4070 follows up one of the best graphics cards of all time, the RTX 3070, and improves on its predecessor in just about every conceivable way. From gaming performance to synthetic benchmarks, I extensively push these two cards to their limits, and found that at times the RTX 4070 was running 40% ahead of its predecessor in several games, though ultimately the RTX 4070’s magic balanced out to an average performance gain of about 21%.

And, despite the 20% increase in price over the previous generation’s RTX 3070 MSRP, the RTX 4070 performs so well that you can only shrug. With gaming performance at every resoltiuon capable of going toe to toe with the Nvidia RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 ti — the latter card featuing an MSRP double that of the RTX 4070’s — there’s just no question that this is the best graphics card for most people on the market right now.

Decent enough 1440p performance

Reasons to avoid


Ray tracing and FSR lag behind Nvidia

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 is here to bring AMD RDNA 3 to the under-$300/£300 segment, and it’s got plenty of performance despite its lower price tag.

It’s 1080p performance is absolutely fantastic for the price, even giving the Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti 12GB a run for its money. It’s 1440p performance is also pretty decent considering that the card only has 8GB VRAM and a 128-bit memory bus.

In terms of gaming performance, you can easily get 60 fps on all of the best PC games at 1080p, with most of those running on the highest graphics settings. For more demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077, there might need to be some settings tweaks, but it’s still definitely doable, especially with AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution.

Its ray tracing performance is still behind Nvidia’s last-gen midrange cards, but RDNA 3 has definitely closed much of the gap between the two, so you don’t have to sacrifice ray tracing completely just by going with a cheaper AMD card.

16-pin connector will test your cable management skills

Yes, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is expensive. It also requires a 16-pin connector or adapter. And, it’s very, very big. But, the first release from Nvidia’s new 4000-series is an absolute powerhouse that can tackle anything you need it to. It is the most powerful GPU out there.

In our testing, we found it to perform significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 with two to four times the performance in synthetic benchmarks and up to 100% improved framerates with some games. What’s more, the included DLSS 3 might be the next revolution in gaming once it’s fully utilized.

That said, this is more GPU than what most people need. Creatives and those interested in playing 8K will appreciate how powerful this graphics card is. Just make sure to have a robust enough power supply (and big enough case) to run it.

Ray tracing is still a generation behind Nvidia’s newest cards

Very power hungry

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX had a lot to prove when it hit the scene at the end of 2022, but it succeeds brilliantly in being the most powerful gaming GPU on the market for under $1,000 while outperforming Nvidia’s RTX 4080 overall, which costs 20% more.

The new 2nd-gen ray accelerators in the RX 7900 XTX makes 4K gaming on ultra settings with ray tracing a reality on an AMD card, something that the last flagship AMD card, the RX 6950 XT, couldn’t quite accomplish. 

It’s not without faults, including falling behind the Nvidia RTX 4000-series in terms of ray tracing (while still beating out the RT performance of the Nvidia RTX 3090) and some uneven creative workload performance, but overall, this is the one graphics card we would recommend to just about anybody who are looking to finally upgrade their GPU after years of graphics card shortages.

Very large

The Nvidia RTX 3090 is still one of the best graphics cards out there, even though it is a last-gen GPU. With a whopping 24GB of RAM, no game or, more importantly, heavy graphics project will suffer performance issues. 

In fact, we were even able to get some 8K performance at 60 fps out of the 3090. That said, it is an incredibly expensive unit, and quite large too, so it will probably be too much GPU for most users.  

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is, in essence, a replacement for the Titan so it’s meant more for the creative user tackling intensive 3D and video rendering than for the avid gamer. 

Even so, it comes with a massive reduction in price compared to the Titan, making it a bargain for creative professionals used to shelling out a lot of money for the tools of their trade.

No Founders Edition

Still expensive

The Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti is easily the best 1440p GPU you can buy right now, thanks to third-generation ray tracing cores, fourth-generation tensor cores, and advanced Nvidia Lovelace architecture, you get most of the best features of Nvidia’s flagship GPUs of this generation without the exorbitant price tag.

That’s not to say the Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti is necessarily cheap, because it’s not; especially when you factor in the fact that there is no Founder’s Edition card selling for Nvidia’s MSRP. You’ll need to find a third-party card for this SKU, and those can run well above MSRP. 

You will get some additional bells and whistles, like RGB lighting, advanced cooling, and even some overclocking depending on the card. If you can find it for a reasonable price, then you should definitely consider the 4070 Ti. It will serve you well for many, many years to come, without question.

Excellent 1080p performance


Improved ray tracing performance


DLSS 3 with Frame Generation

Reasons to avoid


Marginally better non-DLSS performance over RTX 3060 Ti

So, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti isn’t exactly our favorite graphics card, primarily because we expected a lot more from it in terms of performance. Unlike the other Nvidia Lovelace graphics cards, which saw substantial performance improvements over the cards they were replacing, the RTX 4060 Ti is only marginally better than the RTX 3060 Ti when not using DLSS 3 with Frame Generation.

To be clear, this is the best 1080p graphics card in terms of performance, and since Nvidia didn’t raise the price on this one (unlike the entire rest of its Lovelace lineup), this card earns a spot on this list be default, if grudgingly. If you’re playing a game with Nvidia DLSS 3 and Frame Generation, the performance is honestly impressive, pushing 70% faster frame rates in some cases, including at 1440p.

Considering how much we loved the RTX 3060 Ti, though, we were hoping for more from the 4060 Ti, especially since not a lot of games feature DLSS 3 and Frame Generation yet. But if you’re looking to upgrade from an Nvidia Turing GPU or a comparable 5000-series AMD card, then the RTX 4060 Ti is going to blow you away. 

If you’ve already got an RTX 3060 Ti though, you’re better off saving up for the RTX 4070 or RTX 4070 Ti instead.

Annoying 12-pin connector

With the release of the Nvidia RTX 4080, the RTX 3080 is definitely outclassed by its successor. But even at its MSRP, the RTX 3080 is the better overall value by still providing phenomenal performance at a more accessible price point.

And now that the RTX 4080 is on sale, the price of the RTX 3080 is dropping across the board, making it an even better deal for gamers out there who want a playable 4K gaming experience without having to spend a fortune to do so.

This is also an even better deal if you’re starting to dabble in some creative content like 3D modeling or video editing and you need a more powerful GPU to handle the workflows, but you don’t have a whole lot of money to spend on a professional-grade GPU like the RTX 3090 or RTX 4090.

The 12-pin connector that Nvidia uses for its Founders Edition and that some third-party cards use is definitely annoying, but it’s honestly worth the hassle to get the kind of performance this card is capable of.

Longer than reference RTX 4070

slightly more expensive

There are a lot of third-party cards out there to choose from, so picking one out of all the options and declaring it the definitive best is a tricky proposition, but we definitely want to highlight the PNY RTX 4070 XLR8, which takes the best graphics card on our list and makes it just a little bit better.

As a third-party GeForce RTX card, the PNY RTX 4070 XLR8 Verto is more expensive than the Nvidia reference card, but it also comes with software overclocking, customizable RGB lighting effects, and best of all, it only requires an 8-pin connector rather than Nvidia’s 16-pin cable that’s been giving everyone so much agita.

And while you might think that the 8-pin connector wouldn’t deliver as much power as the Nvidia 16-pin cable, when we compared the results from the RTX 4070 reference card to those of the PNY RTX 4070 XLR8, we only saw a slightly lower power draw on the PNY card (about 196W) compared to the reference RTX 4070 (about 203W), but we didn’t see this translate into any performance degradation of note, with the PNY card getting about 99% of the reference RTX 4070’s performance without software overclocking.

The PNY card is physically longer than the Nvidia RTX 4070 Founders Edition (the PNY RTX 4070 XLR8 is about as long as the RTX 4080 reference card), so take that into consideration when looking at this card, but the 8-pin connector and extra features definitely makes the slightly higher price more palatable.

How we tested the best graphics cards

When it comes to the best graphics cards, it’s incredibly important to make sure we’re testing everything on an equal playing field. That’s why, whenever a new graphics card comes out, we test it in a suite of around 11-12 games and across several resolutions, all on current drivers. 

That means that we re-test all current-generation graphics cards whenever a new one comes out. And we make sure that all of the cards are tested on the same hardware, which means the same processor, with the same memory at the same speed, on the same motherboard, with the same SSD. That way, we can be sure that we’re measuring how the graphics card itself is performing, and we can more reliably compare it against its rivals. 

We also make sure to log how much power its consuming and the temperatures it reaches under load, to make sure we can recommend it to people that may be concerned about high temperatures in their PCs. 

Finally, we take a look at the features that each graphics card offers, though usually these don’t really change generation-to-generation. However, the performance while enabling something like ray tracing definitely can change.  

How to choose the best graphics card for you

How to choose the best graphics card for you

Since the best graphics cards are readily available again, you can be more discerning about your choice. Yu would have more options across different price ranges so you must decide how much you’re willing to spend. 

Of course, you also need to consider your graphical demands as well. You shouldn’t settle for what you can afford right now if it’s not powerful enough to handle your daily needs. You’re better putting it off for a bit and saving up until you can afford the GPU that’s the right fit.

As for which one that is, you need to take a look at the vital specs: GPU memory, GPU size, Thermal Design Power or TDP, and ports and power connectors are all important. As are the number of teraflops (or GFLOPS) it has since that indicates the theoretical performance of that graphics card. 

If you want the best ray tracing experience, Nvidia is still the king of the castle. However, we’re sure that AMD will be upping its ray tracing game in order to compete. If you’re into VR games and experiences, you should also make sure that it supports VR as well.

Which graphics card is best for gaming?

Generally speaking, the best graphics card for gaming is going to depend on several factors. Things like what kind of games you like to play, what resolution you play at and whether or not you care about fancy features like ray tracing and DLSS are incredibly important. 

For example, if you just want to play all the latest games at 1080p with high settings, you can get by with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 or an AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT. But if you want to play everything totally maxed out with ray tracing at 4K, you’re probably going to want to go for something like the RTX 3080 Ti instead. 

What is the best brand for graphics cards?

The age-old question of whether Nvidia or AMD is the best brand for graphics cards will likely never go away. Right now, both GPU manufacturers are basically on equal ground, and what will ultimately be right for you probably won’t be right for someone else. 

Generally, if you like ray tracing, Nvidia will probably have the edge for you and in the past AMD was better for people on a budget.

    bucket picker opinion and voting / Sudo Null IT News Like any other comparison of video cards on YouTube, IXBT, TechnicalCity. I actually look at the preliminary comparison of video cards and the rating of video cards there. A very convenient service to quickly estimate «by eye», by technology, ports, and approximate performance.

    Objectively, Steam tells us that the best graphics card is Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060. Then comes RTX 2060. Why?

    It’s simple:

    1. Cheap.

    2. Rays.

    3. DLSS.

    4. ?…

    5. PROFIT.

    In extreme cases, Geforce GTX 1060 — preferably 6 gig. And judging by the Steam data, no one plays on Radeon at all … apparently they only mine!

    But not in vain, in the title I wrote about the «bucket collector»? And that means it’s time to move on to the introduction.

    The best graphics card according to Steam. Can not argue with that.

    What the article will be about:

    1. About assembling buckets from tin and garbage.

    2. About comparison of video cards found among tin and garbage.

    3. About the main disappointment that I managed to hold in my hands.

    4. About unexpected conclusions about which card is the best.

    And remember, this is not an absolute performance top. And your opinion may differ from mine…

    Assembling buckets

    First, let’s define. I am not a gamer. And not a professional assembler. I do not earn money on this, sometimes I assemble computers for myself, for relatives, and computers that solve their problems.

    At the same time, I love experiments. Here are some of them:

    • Run Witcher 3 on GTX 560 in FHD (i5 3450), get 3 BSODs. Overheat. Almost burned down the PC. And then guess to undervolt the card, and complete the game without any problems at 70-74 degrees of the video card (not even at the minimum settings, by the way).

      How I actually undervolted a gtx 560 (joke)

    • Get 7-ku on Pentium 3 and 640 MB RAM from decommissioned PCs, because there are no other PCs in the office, and I was too lazy to carry a laptop there with me.

    • Buy laptop with AMD hybrid graphics (R8 M365DX). And then lament that they stopped supporting it, and release new firewood.

    • Be happy with the HP OEM block. And then wonder why the power supply is non-removable, and why is the gtx 680 not included?

    • Collect a piece of iron for P106-100, just because it was soldered-repaired, and got it for a bottle of beer? I love. I can. I practice.

    And I am silent about any banal stuff like building a Xeon on DDR2, throwing 12 operatives there, throwing in a stub card, and giving it to my beloved mother-in-law. And then wonder why the PSU did not take out the Xeon processor, and took everything with it.

    Computer for my beloved mother-in-law. Footage from the internet.

    Well, in general, jokes, jokes, and most of the assembled computers are real buckets. But they work, they perform tasks, and they cost much less than any solution available at the time of assembly.

    But all of a sudden…

    In general… Without going into details, a new «Bucket» was needed. Yes, such that you can play games (at about the minimum in FHD, but so that not only games of the past, but also of the future). And the money is not much cost, and stood for a long time.

    And the first thing I ran into was the video card… It would seem that the obvious answer is “the wild geforce gtx 1060”. Yes, such a card would be cheap… BUT:

    1. She is many years old.

    2. Many options after mining.

    3. Eats a lot of electricity.

    4. Will not fit in every case.

    And most importantly, she does not have DLSS. Those. yes, it’s a good choice. But for a new bucket, I didn’t want to.

    For the same reason, the cards of the 30th series have disappeared. For a «bucket» is expensive. Yes, and for some reason, the newer PEC and eat even more electricity, although it would seem « technical process-progress-all-cases «.

    Nvidia Geforce RTX 3050 that eats more than Geforce 1660? Are you sure you’ve positioned the lineup correctly?

    In general, since the most obvious option does not fit, it’s time to start comparing video cards and choosing the best one based on your needs.

    Bucket picker’s criteria for the best graphics card!

    Video card of my dreams!

    The criteria for a candidate for the best video card in the bucket were as follows:

    1. Not expensive.

    2. Relatively new.

    3. Launches everything that has come out and will come out in the next year or two, at minimum wages or a little higher, without the risk of blackouts. (FHD)

    4. Low power consumption. Don’t waste money on a power supply.

    5. So that it fits into a small case without normal cooling …

    And … Beast … More … NEC … you say. And you will be right. But I want a piece of iron. I want to. Do not want to spend money on BP / Mother / percent? Do not want.

    Typical PC assembly. Opinion Gencraft

    Well, in general, it was time to pick up a mug of coffee. Open Technical city on one monitor. On the second. Board of announcements. And on the third… Oh wait… I don’t have a third monitor. In general, and for the rest, look at real tests and reviews.

    Candidate #1: The most obvious… Iris XE Graphics

    Candidate #1 Iris XE Graphics

    It would seem that it’s an Intel plug-in. Just perfect. Slightly falls short in performance to what we wanted. But I thought to myself that after all, I have a good base of games coming out until 2018, and Iris XE should pull them.

    On the other hand. This is an embed. So we can safely save on the power supply. And even try to shrink at 350-400 watts. You don’t even have to worry about the processor.

    I reviewed the tests. All. Need to take. And then I remembered that:

    • the insert will have one connector. God bless that one.

    • a good memory is needed to build in.

    • Good processors with Iris XE cost like three old Ryazan.

    And at the same time, there is still a lack of performance. It’s not a discrete graphics card.

    Although to be honest, I was generally pleasantly surprised by the power of modern built-ins. Technically, if you need to assemble a computer, and buy a video card later. Quite a worthy decision.

    But still, I kept Iris as a fallback and continued my search.

    Of course, you can always take a more powerful power supply, and put some GTX780 on it for 10 kopecks, and close the question. But I wanted something quiet, cold and productive.

    Candidate #2: It would seem that this is the Radeon RX 6400

    A card that can be advised if you are not a pervert!

    Having finished with the integrations from Intel, I decided to pay attention to the Radeon, but not to the AMD Radeon R7, but to the latest and budget among gaming, and gaming among budget solutions. To be honest, since childhood I have had an inexplicable dislike for the “reds”, and a laptop with an “R8” on board only strengthens it.

    Yes, visually everything was fine. All tests. No extra power needed. Low profile. $150 new. 4 gigabytes. But only it is revealed exclusively in PCIe 4.0. And we, I remind you, are collecting … A bucket!

    Cheap mothers on Pcie 4.0. search more. And they are also extremely embarrassing «6nm» with a rather high power consumption (as for such a low technical process).

    And also a cut memory bus. And also the price. There is no such card on the BU market. And a new one like this costs about $250-280 (yes, I know that the recommended price is 150, but the fact is the fact)

    In general. The card is really good. It can compete with the GTX 1650. And even beat it in some things. BUT!

    She has one big problem. For maximum disclosure, it requires a good rest of the hardware. And in this case, well, it’s better to sit out on the IRIS XE, and only then buy something with a higher class.

    In general, as you understand… With every fiber of my soul I resisted the basic solution from AMD, and was looking for something… something cheaper, comparable in power, more energy efficient. And we still remember the reserve for the future.

    And now I understand. I need an RTX 2050. A card, albeit with not the highest performance, but tensor cores and DLSS will extend its life for a long time. But there was one small problem. RTX 2050 — does not exist!

    Candidate #3: Victory… but there is a nuance

    Who has already guessed what kind of video card?

    So, here it is the fish of my dreams, video card, which is just perfect for all my tasks …

    Please stop for a little disclaimer. At the moment when I looked at the reviews, characteristics and tried on this video card, I was led by the following delusion. If a Card based on TU106 architecture supports RTX and DLSS, then why shouldn’t a Card based on TU117 architecture support it? Yes, mindfulness is not my forte.

    So imagine…

    • 40 watts. Against 75 for most video cards.

    • 128 bit memory bus.

    • 4GB GDDR6.

    • 160.0 Gb/s throughput.

    • 12 Nm technical process.

    • Mid-2021. But at the same time, the BU market is full of it, for a price much cheaper than the recommended one.

    Low profile. Small. Neat. Is this a map? It’s a dream! Naturally, we will talk about T600

    But, I’m a fool, I thought that she could also do DLSS with rays. And this despite the fact that I was not at all embarrassed by the absence of tensor cores in the specifications.

    Nvidia T600 — the best video card of all time

    Nvidia they are. Craftsmen with a tambourine screwed to old RTX voice video cards. So why shouldn’t the T600 be DLSS capable?

    But it is DLSS that is the parameter that can maximize the life of a video card, especially if you are ready to put up with some compromises in graphics, for the opportunity to play fresh games on a bucket!

    By the way, in terms of power, it is not much inferior to the same RX 6400. In general, even despite the subsequent disappointment with the lack of DLSS (which is in games, but does not affect FPS), we get a good card for sane money.

    Solving the problem with DLSS

    Well, the card has arrived. Unpacked. Installed. Launched. Rejoiced. We were a little upset by the stress temperatures (about the same as those of the geforce gtx 1050 ti), but nothing. Undervolting has not yet been canceled (within reasonable limits).

    I’m running Cyberpunk. I happily click on DLSS. I look at the FPS … And nothing has changed.

    Well, I think it’s not worth explaining further. Useful, I realized that there are no tensor cores. And I thought, wasn’t the same RX 6400 the best option?

    But then I compared the price of a video card. Compared the heat pack. I figured out the performance, and remembered the magical FSR 2.0.

    But FSR lathers. And in general he is not ice. And not all games are supported, unlike DLSS. Yes, and you can put it on any map starting from the 10th series of OVENs.

    Well, everything is extremely simple here. We take DLSS Unlocker (which is actually not DLSS at all, it just allows you to use the technologies that NVidia uses to calculate vectors in motion), and with the help of such a small utility, we connect FSR 2.0. where it does not exist natively.

    Profit? Profit!

    What else to look for

    Bucket as it is. Or what you have to do to fit the T600 into an ordinary PC

    All this is good, and I bought a video card used. But if for some reason you want to build a game bucket and buy a T600 graphics card, keep the following things in mind: There are stubs for thin PCs, there are full-fledged ones. A trifle, but if you didn’t guess, or didn’t ask the seller, you will have to run after the stub.

  • The card itself has only miniDisplay ports. There are store versions with adapters. There are without. Be careful. A port on the side can cost an additional $5-10, which somewhat offsets the low cost of the T600.

  • Not all adapters work with 144hz monitors. Strange claim, but keep in mind.

  • Video card won’t start with Asus motherboards. Tested on B560+. None. Only when switching the BIOS to Legacy mode.

    Just a picture of the «saving» adapter. In general, their sea. they are different. You need to look for about 144 HZ.

  • If you want to get the most out of your card. We’ll have to collective farm additional cooling. A normal directional fan will suffice. It’s all about an extremely unfortunate system with a cooler that drives all the warm air to the wrong place …

    What did you put the video card on in the end?

    We figured out the video card. Remember that we are collecting a bucket. So in the end, what did I put her on?

    I ended up planting it on the HP ProDesk 600 G3 TWR. Yes, yes, for the next OEM piece of iron. Why? Because the power of 4-core processors is still enough to run modern games (albeit at the minimum). And OEM computers on the used market traditionally cost “indecently cheap”

    Just a photo of Prodesk to make it clear that it is already an average PC. And there is also SSR. But I didn’t have it on hand. Theoretically, the T600 will fit perfectly there.

    The result is an extremely entertaining piece of iron with:

    1. I7-7700 on board.

    2. 16 RAM ddr-4 (delivered his own).

    3. 320 watt PSU (this is the ceiling of what HP Prodesk gives. Usually 250 watts).

    4. Nvidia T600 (4GB).

    Yes, I have collected another bucket. Which at the same time fit in 300 watts. And at the same time it can be used for FHD gaming.

    T600 was selected as a card that can do FSR (although I was hoping for DLSS). And given that with the help of all sorts of DLSS unlockers, you can screw FSR even where it is not officially available, and most importantly, this is not a video card for mining!

    As a result, we got

    Best graphics card of 2023. Energy efficient. Sufficiently productive. Suitable not only for games, but also for work. And you can not be afraid to take it on the used market. And given that we seem to be approaching a new mining boom — this is a pretty good advantage!

    This card is more powerful than the «usual» plugs. And for its 40 watts, it provides sufficient performance. Doesn’t that make her perfect?

    Of course, you can throw slippers at me and say that the latest generation i3 processor could be taken. And look at some Ryzen 5 1600. And perhaps you even know the best video card (the same Rx 6400, not worse at all).

    But I’m just a tin bucket collector, and this solution was enough to run all modern games. And the cheapest possible. At the same time, I am sure that the card has not been mined, that it will not fall off from old age, and that, if desired, I can insert it into any, even very thin, OEM case.

    P.S. perhaps someone was upset by the lack of head-to-head tests. Well, out of all three cards (including the insert), I only held the t600 in my hands. And you can see its performance on YouTube. And on TechnicalCity (a service for comparing video cards online). And even on IXBT. There in detail. 20 pages, with tests, screenshots. Yes, and when I chose it, I was guided precisely by publicly available materials. They will be better than my retelling, or screenshots with FPS.

    Top 9 Most Powerful Graphics Cards: Ranking the Best 2023

    The most powerful graphics card is not always the best graphics card. Therefore, before buying such components, you need to carefully weigh the pros and cons, evaluate the capabilities of your computer and choose the best accelerator for it. Moreover, the price of a mistake here is quite high.

    No, of course, now video cards are not as expensive as in the heyday of mining. But they are still one of the most expensive components of any computer. Well, so that you do not overpay too much and buy the right graphics, read our article. It contains the best graphics cards in each market segment, and you can definitely find the model that suits you best.


    • For maximum budget gaming: Intel Arc A380
    • Best for Full HD Gaming: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050
    • Best for 1440p gaming: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
    • For 4K gaming: Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti
    • For 8K gaming: Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080
    • For AI and Content Creators: Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090
    • Great balance of performance and price: Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070
    • Fastest AMD: AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX
    • For the curious: Intel Arc A770
    • GPU: ACM-G11
    • Memory: 6 GB GDDR6
    • Power consumption: 75 W
    • Resolution in games: Full HD

    A new player in the desktop graphics market — Intel — took the matter seriously and released several models of accelerators at once, one of which turned out to be designed for the budget segment of the market. Moreover, if graphics on outdated technologies usually fall into this segment, then the Intel Arc A380 has become a pleasant exception to this rule. And its price looks much more attractive than what Nvidia and AMD offer.

    The video card offers 6 GB of memory at once, is equipped with 4 video outputs and has more than competitive performance. It is quite suitable for games in Full HD resolution at medium graphics settings, but you will have to forget about ray tracing, and the video card drivers are not very stable yet. However, the latter is a temporary phenomenon and is typical for almost all new products.

    • GPU: GA106
    • Memory: 8 GB GDDR6
    • Power consumption: 130 W
    • Resolution in games: Full HD

    Can the best video card belong to the previous generation of accelerators? As it turned out, quite. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 is much more affordable than the new generation of Nvidia graphics cards and at the same time allows you to play almost all existing titles at high graphics settings at Full HD resolution. At the same time, the video card has full support for ray tracing and other «goodies» that are typical for Nvidia products.

    The graphics card uses the Ampere architecture GA106 GPU and is equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. It supports DLSS technology, which allows you to significantly increase FPS in games, and Reflex for minimal input lag. The model has a power consumption of 130W, and the manufacturer recommends using it in a system with a 550W or higher power supply. For additional power, an 18-pin PCIe connector is used here.

    • Read us where you want: 🔹 Telegram 🔹 Zen 🔹 Vkontakte
    • GPU: GA104
    • Memory: 8 GB GDDR6
    • Power consumption: 200 W
    • Game resolution: 1440p

    The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is only 9% slower than the RTX 3070 while offering a 20% more affordable price tag. The graphics card is great for 1440p gaming, not to mention the usual Full HD gaming for many. It is especially good if you plan to upgrade from models of the GTX 1070 level — the video card will provide a twofold, and sometimes even more impressive performance boost in games.

    The only drawback of the model is not the largest amount of video memory. 8 GB is still enough for the vast majority of games, but some of them are already starting to go beyond this threshold, and over time there will be more and more such titles. Of course, in this case, you can also play by simply reducing the quality of the textures, but this solution may not be to the liking of many users.

    • GPU: AD104
    • Memory: 12 GB GDDR6X
    • Power consumption: 285 W
    • Resolution in games: 4K

    The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti didn’t manage to surprise us with any kind of outrageous performance or productivity, but it’s still 15-20% faster than the RTX 3080 and costs only 20% more than the cheapest RTX 3080. However, many such graphics cards are in reality even more expensive than the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.

    The video card will easily play most games at 4K resolution, providing an acceptable 60 FPS. For the same reason, its purchase is not very reasonable if your monitor does not support 4K and has a standard Full HD resolution. It uses the latest Ada Lovelace GPU and comes with 12GB of fast GDDR6X video memory and requires a 700W or higher PSU to run properly.

    • GPU: AD103
    • Memory: 16 GB GDDR6X
    • Power consumption: 320 W
    • Game resolution: 4K, 8K

    The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 delivers uncompromising 4K gaming performance and handles 8K gaming with ease. With the fresh AD103 GPU based on the Ada Lovelace architecture and massive 16GB GDDR6X memory, it is well ahead of all previous generation Nvidia graphics cards, outperforming its predecessor by about 50%. Compared to the RTX 3080 Ti, the advantage of this model, although it looks a little more modest, is still very impressive — about 30%.

    At the same time, at the start of sales, it turned out to be almost twice as expensive as the RTX 3080, which immediately nullified the benefit of its higher performance. But if you’re looking for the best Nvidia graphics card for gamers, then the GeForce RTX 4080 is the one for you.

    • GPU: AD102
    • Memory: 24 GB GDDR6X
    • Power consumption: 450 W
    • Resolution in games: 8K

    The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is rightfully considered the most powerful graphics card in the world and will almost certainly remain so until the release of the RTX 4090 Ti. It boasts up to 55% better gaming performance than the 3090 Ti, and with ray tracing turned on, the edge of Nvidia’s new flagship increases to nearly 80%.

    But first of all, this video card is not intended for gamers, but for content creators. And it is in this mode of operation that she shows herself from the best side. GeForce RTX 4090 is about 80% faster than the 3090 Ti in Blender, Octane and V-Ray, and when working with artificial intelligence technologies, it proved to be beyond praise. Suffice it to say that when tested in Stable Diffusion, it was EIGHT times faster than the RX 6950 XT.

    • GPU: AD104
    • Memory: 12 GB GDDR6X
    • Power consumption: 200 W
    • Game resolution: 1440p

    If you’re looking to get one of Nvidia’s latest graphics cards with Ada Lovelace GPUs, but don’t want to chase maximum performance, preferring to balance price and features, then the GeForce RTX 4070 is one of your best buys.

    This card uses the same AD104 GPU as the RTX 4070 Ti, but runs at a slightly lower clock speed. As a result, the performance of the GeForce RTX 4070 is only 15% lower than that of the older model with its 20-25% more affordable price tag. In other words, a video card without a Ti prefix looks much better in terms of price and features. Yes, and the latter are more than enough for any games in 1440p resolution at high graphics settings and some titles in 4K.

    • GPU: Navi 31
    • Memory: 24 GB GDDR6
    • Power consumption: 355 W
    • Game resolution: 4K, 8K

    The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX is comparable in performance to the GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card. It provides slightly lower performance in games with ray tracing and slightly faster than Nvidia’s development without ray tracing. This is the main drawback of the flagship of the red team. With more and more ray-traced games on the rise, the RTX 4080 looks like a much better value.

    You can also use this video card for work tasks. But here, too, things are not so straightforward, and if you plan to do research in the field of artificial intelligence or deep learning, then competing Nvidia products will be the best buy here.

    • GPU: Alchemist ACM-G10
    • Memory: 16 GB GDDR6
    • Power consumption: 225 W
    • Game resolution: Full HD, 1440p

    It would seem that quite recently we associated the words “best integrated video card” with AMD products, but with the release of the latest generations of Intel processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, the situation improved a bit, and not so long ago the company decided to try its hand at the discrete graphics market . The pen test, by the way, turned out to be very worthy.

    The company’s most powerful graphics card, the Intel Arc A770, is roughly on par with the RTX 3060, and in some tests, its performance is comparable to the RTX 3060 Ti.
